Isabelle Huppert can do no wrong these days. Her appetite for taking on a variety of different roles with a wide range of directors is exemplary. With more than 100 films under her belt, she has created a filmography second to none.
With the captivating relationship drama Souvenir, exquisitely directed by Bavo Defurne, she again shows how willing she is to challenge, explore, and expand her artistry in her role as a middle-aged factory worker whose long-ago brush with fame comes to the fore again when she begins a romance with a young aspiring boxer.
